Linux "Linux vendor Canonical said it has 'no interest' in Linux kernel development. Two weeks ago a Linux Foundation report showed that since version 2.6.32, Microsoft had committed more code to the Linux kernel than Canonical. Since then, Canonical has faced claims from rivals that it does not contribute to Linux as much as it should given its popularity. Recently Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth told The Inquirer that his company has no interest in contributing to the Linux kernel." Why is this such a bad thing? You can contribute more to open source than code alone. Like, I don't know, users?

My only beef with Canonical was all the times that talk about their new release with X, Y, and Z technologies. The problem is that most of those technologies were built and testing in distros like Fedora, debian, and OpenSuse. If you like Ubuntu, fine, no problem. But lets not forget where the majority of the development is done. It isn't usually on Ubuntu.
